And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars

The early Believers on Jesus Christ, as we have covered many times before, absolutely refused to fight in the fleshly wars that men always start and drag others into through various lies and schemes. They would not even defend themselves from the Romans, or the so-called “Jews” that persecuted and killed many of them. Stephen is a good example.

Act 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. Act 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Christians fighting in wars for the empire or their local governments is never what The Lord intended for His people. We have covered that before also, many times, not going to do it again here. Read the following Bible verse carefully:

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I think that says it all, instead of amplifying that, we just want to point out to the “Christian” that still feels compelled to fight, the consequences of dong so. Because “Christians” were led astray to do the fighting and killing for their respective countries we've had endless wars, from the Crusades to the modern Crusades to defeat the evil terrorists. Many people say to me if we didn't fight World War II we'd all be goosestepping and saying “Heil Hitler”! I say to you if the “Christians” in Germany hadn’t been deceived and turned from the commandments of our Lord, then the similarly deceived “Christians” in America, Britain, France, etc, wouldn't have had anyone to fight in the first place.

The early believers focus was upon preaching the Gospel, not delivering it at the end of a rifle barrel. Social justice, feeding the poor, the widows and orphans, and again PREACHING THE GOSPEL! That seems to be far down the list of things to do for the modern “Christian”. These things will happen when you conform to the world, or the “church” that you go to does.

You say the Bible teaches us to obey our government, to obey our religious leaders? Is that right? No, it is not. If all the children of Israel would have obeyed the civil and religious leaders during Jesus' ministry on earth and after, then there would have been no disciples, no New Testament, no spreading of the Beautiful Gospel! But, praise be to God, some did obey our Lord and the truth can still be found, outside of the conformed to the world “church”!

A true follower of Jesus Christ today must know and remember that the kingdoms of the world belong to Satan (Luk 4:5-6), the governments, for the most part and beyond a shadow of a doubt the American government, are led by satanic puppets. Endless war based on lies will continue until His glorious return.

Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

If a Christian is deceived into fighting in these wars they will be doing the bidding of Satan, not defending freedom, not protecting their country or family. Lies, lies, lies and more lies, watch the video below, there is no such thing as a “Just War”, another lie from Satan. “Just War” is in fact an oxymoron.

Don't let your government or their controlled media, your teachers, or even your church or pastor talk you into taking part in these wars that benefit only Satan and his followers, the war profiteers, the banksters et al.

If the church you attend doesn't teach this, doesn't warn you to avoid this, then it is hopelessly conformed to the world and you should seek fellowship elsewhere.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Fear not for I am with thee and will bless thee

The Lord knows how our flesh can be, that's why He spent so much time on comforting His disciples, and those who heard His sermons. And when He left physically, He sent the Comforter in His place, to remind us always that He is with us in Spirit, and if we follow after the Spirit and not the flesh, we'll always be one with Him and the Father.

These end days are definitely faith testing times, get too caught up in the world and His Word will be of little effect in comforting you. But friends, if we stay in His Word, His Will, we shall have the peace He desires us to have:

Joh 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Php 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Php 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

No matter what trials or tribulations we go through He is always there with us. We are not alone in this wicked world, we too will overcome through Him as He said we would. Abiding in Jesus and the Father we'll overcome to the end and be with Him forever (Rev 3:12, 1 Th 4:17).

What trials are you going through? Is it money? Health? Fear? No matter, the Lord has addressed all these things, He knows what we need:

Mat 6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Php 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Health issues can weigh on the mind if we let them. I know, I battle them frequently, but I know that He knows what I need, and He will heal me, if it be His will. We have to turn our cares over to Him, He cares for us (1 Pe 5:7), and we have to let Him bear our burdens instead of trying to carry them by ourselves:

Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Jer 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

Isa 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Another thing that can steal our peace away is sin in our life. If we have confessed our sin and repented of it, the Lord is merciful to forgive us. Sometimes the guilt of our sins can overwhelm us and make us feel that God doesn't love us anymore, that we can't be forgiven, these too are lies from the enemy. David was forgiven of murder and adultery, Paul of at least being an accomplice to the murder of the early followers of Jesus Christ. Those were weighty sins, but, they were forgiven. If we take our sins to the Lord and truly repent, with true godly sorrow, he knows our hearts and will forgive us also. How many times?

Mat 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Mat 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

490? Would He ask us to forgive those he would not forgive? I am certainly not condoning or saying anyone has a license to sin, but the scriptures are clear. I would also add as many of you know, when you sin, that is when a true believer sins, they will feel intense pain and sorrow. They probably won't sleep well until they take it to the Lord in true repentance. You do not want to go through this pain, no sin is worth it. Sin will separate you from the Lord, it’s possible you could develop a seared conscience, and start to believe evil is good and good is evil, it’s dangerous, stay in prayer constantly to avoid it. Ask the Lord to deliver you from evil and temptation always.

2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

As we go through our day, remember to keep it one day at a time as the Lord told us to (Mat 6:34), and to take every thought and make it line up with His commandments. Trust and obey and stand firm on your faith. Put on the whole armor of God and tell the devil that he is a liar and you won’t listen to his attempts to fill you with doubt and fear, and tempt you to sin. We are children of God, we have a Bible full of promises to put our faith in. We have the Lord who hears our prayers, and rewards us as we seek him earnestly.

2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Fear not!

Let's Kill Them All Before They Can Kill Us!

The evil Muslims are at our door, if we don't kill them all first they'll kill us, our women and children, and they'll takeover the U.S. and we'll be living under Sharia law. So we need to start up the Crusades again, we killed a couple million already, but we need to kill more.

Although this is the prevalent attitude amongst “Christians”, I couldn't disagree more, this is NOT the way of Jesus, or His followers.

Did the early followers of Jesus Christ seek revenge for the murder of their Savior? Did they take up arms against the Romans? No, they did not.

What makes it OK to do so now, against an enemy that is largely fictional?

The problem is over the years the followers of Christ have slowly conformed to the world, they became more and more like those they were supposed to have come out of. Now Jesus' words telling us to turn the other cheek, to do good to our enemies have been lost amongst the feel good do what your flesh wants to do “Church” that acts as the body of Christ.

From the earliest believers who refused to serve the emperor, or the empire, to today's “Christians” who stand and applaud their “heroes” as they go to “Church” in their battle fatigues, fresh from the battle fields, killing the innocent men, women and children, who just happened to be in the wrong place.

Innocent? Yes innocent. I could go back a lot farther and prove that the wars prior to Vietnam were contrived also, but we'll keep it simple to get our point across as strongly as possible. Vietnam, and every war or police action the United States has been involved in since were all based on lies.

So the American government has lied itself into numerous war crimes, killing millions of people, and we as “Christians” are to be praised when we take part in that? The Lord Jesus would want us to take part in it? What Bible are you reading from?

You have been deceived by your government, your teachers, your pastors and by your news media. If you admit it to yourself you have a chance of breaking free from the wickedness that has befallen the “Church”. The “Church” that has aligned itself to the government whose lies have been so deadly to millions of innocent men women and children around the world. The “church” that praises the returning men and women as if they were heroes, doing God's will, when in actuality they were most likely complicit in war crimes.

When the “church” conforms to the world and allows itself and its members to be used by the world; to take part in its crimes, to make itself complicit in the crimes, instead of taking a strong stand against it, as it used to do. Then the “Church” becomes part of the world, part of Babylon. That entity which is described as the enemy of God in the end days, which we are told in no uncertain terms to come out of, or be destroyed along with it at the Lord's return.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
